The superficial temporal artery (STA)-based flaps have been used for different reconstructive purposes. These operations may cause facial nerve injury. The variations of the STA and its relation to temporal branch of the facial nerve (TBFN) were evaluated in this study. Thirteen cadavers with 26 STA and TBFN have been dissected. The bifurcation of STA was(More)
Peritendinous adhesions are the most important complication of flexor tendon injury. In this study, Seprafilm was used for the prevention of peritendinous adhesions following flexor tendon repair. Seprafilm Bioresorbable Membrane (Genzyme Corporation, Cambridge, MA) contains sodium hyaluronate and carboxymethyl cellulose. Thirty New Zealand white male(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to measure and compare the in vivo intraaneurysmal pressures of experimental lateral wall aneurysms, before and after onyx embolization. The data of this experiment will carry an important role in forming the scientific basis for the clinical endovascular applications. MATERIALS AND METHODS Five experimental lateral(More)
Arterial distribution of the upper lip was investigated in this study. The location, course, length, and diameter of the superior labial artery and its alar and septal branches were determined on 14 preserved cadaver heads. Another cadaver head was used to show the arterial tree by the colored silicone injection technique. The superior labial artery was the(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate the arterial anatomy of the lower lip. The location, course, length, and diameter of the inferior labial artery and the sublabial artery were revealed by bilateral meticulous anatomic dissections in 14 adult male preserved cadaver heads. Another cadaver head was used for silicone rubber injection to fill the regional(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to compare the free muscle-musculocutaneous flaps and free perforator skin flaps used for soft tissue reconstruction of the lower extremities. METHODS Fifty-three patients whose skin and soft tissue of the lower extremities had been reconstructed were divided into two groups: a perforator flap group,(More)
The submental artery island flap is a versatile option in head and neck reconstruction. This flap may be used for the coverage of perioral, intraoral, and other facial defects, leaving a relatively acceptable donor-site scar. In this study, the submental region of 13 formalin-fixed cadavers was dissected bilaterally. Comprehensive anatomical information(More)
We present the case of a ganglion cyst with 11×3×2 cm dimensions originating from the quadriceps femoris tendon. The patient presented with palpable mass and chronic pain in the anterolateral thigh region. The pain increased with walking. Ultrasonography and computed tomography revealed a cystic, well defined lesion in the vastus lateralis muscle. The(More)
A vastus lateralis muscle flap is used as a pedicled and free flap. In this study, the vastus lateralis muscles of 15 adult formalin-fixed cadavers (30 cases) were dissected. The dominant pedicle was found to be descending branch of the lateral circumflex femoral artery. The mean diameter of the artery was found to be 2.1 mm. This pedicle was located 119.4(More)
The purpose of this study was to form a standard electrical trauma model in rat, to investigate the pathological changes in vessels, and to determine the best day for performing microsurgery. In the preliminary study, 20 rats were divided into five groups. One was control, and the rats in the other four groups were exposed to 240 V electrical potential for(More)
